years of spread the wealth. you didn't build that. share share economics. where has obama failed detroit? >> here's the problem. the president says let me tax houston, send it to washington, then i'll pass it out to some otr part of the country. by doing so, he picks the winners and losers. picks which businesses he thinks will succeed and then he gives them money. but too often this becomes sort of a kroeny capitalism where the government takes money from somebody who is succeeding in business and gives it to somebody who they think might succeed in business. he did this with solindra. he gave it to one of the richest men in the company to build solar panels but nobody wanted to buy solar panels. anybody that's been a consumer who --or been a business that's been rewarded by the consumer, they're the ones who get the money. >> sounds a lot like -- i don't know -- capitalism. senator, president obama promised to not let detroit go bankrupt. he may have been talking about the auto industry or the city, but did the president lie? >> he's given a lot of promises. he promised we could keep o
. the president has not seen omar obama in 20 years and has not spoken with him in roughly ten years. >> they said three years ago he's never met him. is that a small thing or a big thing? these are all huge things. it goes to the trust of the president. whether it's politics, business or personal relationships. when you have a breakdown of whether or not someone is a person of their word or not, rebuilding that is almost impossible. the american people are seeing barack obama for what he is. he says one thing and does another. he's been lying to the american people. he's been exposed. these little lies, like lying about whether you met someone or not that's been significant in your life, listen, those are big things. uh it goes to the character of the person you're dealing with. president obama is proving himself not to be trustworthy on the small things and now the very big things. >> reince priebus, thanks for joining us. coming up, president obama sat down with his biggest fan, nbc news host chris matthews today. brent bozell is here with reaction. first of all, obama is losing support among m
, the republicans nor the democrats have done much to help african-americans get a job. five years of obama policies have led to high elevated unemployment in the black community and frankly the republicans are perceived as not caring about minorities. what's your plan? >> the republican party should compete for every voter in every city in every state. i think we do that by bringing our message to the people who haven't been hearing it and this is a message of economic empowerment. it's also a message of school choice. if you want to get ahead in our country it's through education. so many people in our big cities are being short changed by a bad school system. we want to make it better through competition, by giving every kid the choice. part of our economic freedom zones is that federal money that comes to detroit isn't going to the school system directly but to the kid and their parents and each parent will decide which school they want to take their money to. >> it's a plan that touches regulation and education as well. >> absolutely. >> obama care, all over the news recently obviously for obvi
on a lot of us. >> do you think he had an effect on president obama in his early years? >> i do. he spoke about that. it was really a way for a lot of us to put together the american social and racial justice push with the global one. he was an example of somebody who did evolve. he did preach and practice and found a way to live together despite differences. >> what do you think he accomplished in his life? >> i think creating a society that was not about vengeance and learning what we all had in common. i think that modelling revolutionary values, but also with the sense of deep, deep personal kindness. and a kind of forgiveness that not many of us would be capable of. >> reverent sharpton, do you think his impact, what impact will he have post life. how will he be remembered? >> he's the founding father. he changed the country and went from a country that was apartheid and on racism and not having a full democracy. clearly not sharing the health. he became a new country. he will be remembered in south africa as the father of a new nation, but i think he will be remembered that universi
spent 17 years under incarceration by the government. it was a total of 20 years in prison. in 2002 president george w. bush awarded mandela with a presidential medal of freedom and president obama met with mandela once back when he was a senator in 2005. so right now as we await for the president to speak about the passing of nelson mandela. >> i know it will be some heartfelt remarks from the president because when you think about it, it's this nation's first african american president offering sentiments about south africa's first black president, clearly tied together by their roles in history and connected a number of times in person, the obama family connecting with mandela's family in south africa. again you're looking right now outside of nelson mandela's home in johannesburg where people have gathered to remember, to reflect upon the life of the man they call madeva. he is the father of modern south africa, dead at 95. >> interestingly right now a lot of south africans are asleep because it is past midnight in south africa. so they're going to wake up to this news. those w
in 1972. in 1971, barack obama was only ten years old so he was very young and never able to appreciate that. what i want to make clear, though, we shouldn't call him militant, we shouldn't call him a terrorist, he's a patriot. he's just like the patriots fighting here many, many centuries ago for equality. and that's what he was. he was a patriot who tried to make sure that his country where he was born, where he controlled would recognize the fact that the majority of people who were african were suppressed by the minority of people who were white, and that has to be changed. he is a patriot who did a great deal in his 27 years in prison and did a great deal as president and continues to have that legacy as a patriot. i am a south african. i am an african, as he said when he got his honorary degree from harvard in 1998. that became a watershed moment of him recognizing who he was, what he was and who he's speaking for. >> but to all of you here in new york, it wasn't just that personal grace that allows him to say, i want to make a decision to forgive after he had succeeded. but there
at congress today, when you look at what happened to obama in the knife years since he was initially elected, i think we are very r, sadly, from mandela's legacy in the united states. i think when you look at the global stage and you ask there that is the kind of statesman that mandela really represented to the world, and you scratch your head. we are just not in that enviroent today. we don't have anyone coming to mind that would fit those shoes. they are very big shoes indeed. > yen, one of the fame he is images is of nelson mandela attending the soccer world when it came to stojakovic. what role did that play? >> he was very frail at the time. there was a big question of whether or not he would be able to make it at all. there was south africa appearing on the global stage in the same way that when bengal hosted the olympics, marking the coming of age of china as a real international actor of global capacity. it was so fitting that mandela was able to see that through for his country. i wasn't there, but i of course watched it on tv, as we all did, and you can't tell that it electrifying
of 18- 29-year-olds who used to be obama fans. they are against the affordable care act and would like to so him bounced from office. the president pushed back, look it is the republicans who are trying to discourage you from getting health care, take a listen. >> i need your help. you know i need your help. believe it or not there are organizations that are out there working to convince young people not to get insurance. now think about that. that is a really bizarre way to spend your money. >> and they are cautiously optimistic in the white house that they are starting to turn the corner on healthcare.gov and can get the president out there talking about the benefits of the affordable care act. but we see senate republican staffers tweeting out they were doing a tutorial on how senate staffers sign up for the dc exchange here in washington for the health care and there was a break down with the site. spoker boehner was able to get through and enroll and got bad news about how much it is going to cost. >> my health insurance premiums are going to double. my co-pays and tripled under o
and the flags lowered friday and remain at half staff until his funeral. president obama was in south africa in june with the first family, his daughters and wife, taking, really, a history lesson for his daughters. touring the jail cell where he spent so many years as a political prisoner. did not get a chance to meet with nelson mandela because he is too ill. he's been receiving treatment at home, which is what the family wanted to see. you can see him there with winnie mandela. again, he came out of prison back in 1990, known as the father of democracy in modern south africa. >> we are getting reaction from capitol hill now. democratic leader of the house, nancy pelosi just released this statement about the passing of nelson mandela. with the passing of mandela, the world lost a leader who advanced the cause of equality and human rights and overcame a history of oppression in south africa to expand the reach of freedom worldwide. those words from minority leader, nancy pelosi on capitol hill. >> he was south africa's iconic leader, former president whose lifelong struggle helped break the
that, tamron. going to president obama's remarks, 2013 has been a completely unproductive year, any statistic you end up using or if you're a glass halfful type person, it is the one reason you might have optimism on immigration reform that house republicans have to go back to constituents and say, here's what i was able to achieve in the house of representatives. that's going to be the thing that's going to be pressing and some folks might be wanting for come next year. >> just going back again to the interview with chris and the president. he also asks, chris matthews asks president obama about 2016. we don't have to play it but he played the middle game, complimenting them both heavily. >> it was a very diplomatic response. president obama holds both in high he steam. the political community doesn't expect both of them to run. it's going to be one or the other and right now looks like hillary clinton. >> mark, have a great weekend. thanks for joining us. if you missed chris's interview, it does reair today at 4:00 eastern on msnbc. we'll be right back.

, whether you like the bill or not, for the next three years it is going to be law. until president obama is no longer in the white house, then we have a discussion about repeal. then republicans need to stop saying we need to get it off the books. >> sam, what are they accusing him of? it's like if a baseball batter gets a strike called on him, you don't accuse him of not trying to hit the ball. if you try to hit the ball and fail, that's what obama did here. it was a poor rollout. >> yeah. >> are they accusing him of wanting to have a poor rollout? it seems like they're saying he lied. he wanted this to be lousy. what are they actually accusing him of? >> that's the irony of the criticism. they say the website is so poor. it's not letting people buy coverage. it's not what you promised it to be. and we don't want people to buy coverage. it would be bad for femme. so there is a general inconsistency to the criticism here. but again, the president stressed it today. for the next three years, he will be in the oval office. the repeal movement is for that period of time dead. there is no re

is after five years of living under president obama, you know, he has little to show for what he's done for the black community. in fact if you want to focus on his health care law, his health care law has cost jobs, particularly, you know, jobs in the black community. an he's done very little to speed up the job prospects of millions in black america and millions of americans across the country. so while we're focused on, you know, trying to create jobs, private sector jobs, good-paying jobs, career-making jobs, i would ask, you know, what exactly has the president done for the black community? and the effects of his policies, the effects of president obama's policies -- >> why didn't the jobs act pass in the house? >> you can ask house republicans. or house democrats. >> but that was a led niinitiate by president obama and had the support that it needed from the democratic side. why didn't that initiative move further through the house? >> yeah. you know, a lot of the president's economic policies are based on tax and spend initiatives, things that we've tried in the past and that hav

to be heard, it needs to be informing the debate. in my experience in the three years that i served in, with president obama, this is a president who has no problem hearing dissenting views. in fact, you know, woe be to the person who's scowling in the back row. you will be called on and asked if you have -- [laughter] a dissenting view if you look like you have one. so, i mean, this is a president who seeks out the full range of views because he believes he makes better decisions that way. so, again, i think that, um, you know, dod has an important voice in those deliberations. i don't know anyone who believes that it should be the dominant voice under any circumstances, including me. >> a two-part question for phil and, michelle, feel free to join in. just to follow up on your point about expanding, not contracting the u.s. global basing structure, the strategic logic to that is very compelling. but talk a little bit about the poll ticks and policy -- politics and policy dimensions of that. obviously, africom does not have a headquarters in africa because it's hard to find a stable d
